The recruiting open house will begin with tours of the Kansas Boathouse located at 200 Indiana Street in Burnham Park in Lawrence.

Rowing has been a varsity sport at KU since 1995 and averages about 75 team members each year. The team is comprised of two squads: the Returning Squad, which is for second, third, and fourth year rowers and the Novice Squad, which is for rowers in their first year of collegiate competition. The vast majority of Novices have no previous rowing experience.
Both squads are varsity athletes at KU and enjoy all the benefits that the Athletic Department offers including academic advising and tutoring, training room and weight room access, and workout and racing apparel.
